We dispatch anywhere from 7:30 to 9:30. Our contract says that we don't have to stay any later than 9:30 so once that rolls by even if the trailers arent unloaded we're out of there

Chris, do you have ROADS there, and if so, do ALL of the addresses populate in your power pad? Are they in any geographical order. Not sure what city you are in. I am with Express in Eureka, Ca. We don’t have ROADS at all, and not all of our scanned packages end up populating the addresses.

Any FedEx Express guys and/gals here? Or anyone that has info on it? I'm thinking of driving for FedEx Express or UPS, but I don't really know much about Express. I like that you don't have to work your way up from the bottom at Express, but what is the starting pay like? I have heard that it is less than UPS, but by how much?
Nathan Henry (1 month ago)
Well I just got a part time driving spot starting at 17.10 where I’m at for express
C J (2 months ago)
Yeah I been with FedEx ground for roughly 4 years and looking to get out asap. Maybe express would be better than working for an independent contractor!

Having a good contractor is one of the most important things about this job. If you work for somebody whose not a scumbag and who actually works his own routes and doesn’t just write your check, your day will be a lot smoother. I switched to home delivery and it’s a lot smoother and more routine. Loading your own truck does suck, but when I did ground I was reloading my truck 99% of the time anyway cuz the loaders were terrible at my old terminal. Loading your own truck takes a good hour/hour and a half depending on how many stops you have but you can put everything where you want it and you know exactly where everything is at. There’s ups and downs to both ground and HD, just like anything else. For instance, with HD you’re dealing with residential customers, which can be extremely annoying. When somebody orders alcohol to their house and leaves a note on the door saying they’re home and to “knock hard” but they still take 5 minutes to come outside and it’s pouring rain outside, that shit will get under your skin.

Do you still work there? I had a problem with fedex they lied to me and it cost me 800 bucks.i bought a Harmon kardon receiver .the receiver delivered it with a huge forklift blade hole through my receiver.the seller did not insure it or put a value on it..the delivery guy said take it back I don’t want it he said I had no choice.we started a heated debate in my hallway of my building.old people was watching.my PTSD started to flair it’s ugly head.i said wait one minute gulped my meds and took a couple pics of him and my package.i called fedex they told me about the shipper not insuring it.they told me the shipper needs to sign a waiver .and call them.he told me he did .fedex said he did.then it was my problem.i have to wait for claims .this was dec-5th I told them I will post this on all my social media accounts and everyone else’s.the FedEx driver told me to just call them I did.they called me the next day begging me not to show the picture of my lying fedex delivery guy.if I did he be fired.they told me he a good guy with a family it’s before Christmas and they will pay me.they didn’t 10 days went by nothing.im poor myself it took me a year to save that money to buy myself something nice.claims on the phone told me that the shipper needs to sign the waiver I said your people told me he did.the rude woman said this is claims and he did .i reach out to the guy he wants nothing to do with it no more he tired of it .hung up deleted his ebay .and I don’t Blame him either.i call fedex again a smart mouth claims guy gets on and says I guess your out of luck.i said ok this is how your gonna do me.he said with pride YUP and laughed at me.im no country boy an no suburb guy.he would have been on a ventilator if I knew where he was. Any advice on my next move besides making a huge damaging video about fedex and the driver losing his job? My video is going to start off with bob marley song don’t worry be happy .and a photo of my driver and all the shit that fedex had done to people over the years.many people are helping well victims.any advice friend.you are a good guy though

that's a lie about ups because they are having problems with their contracts
Lisa Dasher (5 months ago)
and it's not your fault that it looks like that because the unloaders are supposed to unload your truck's and the loaders are supposed to load your truck's for you that's how we do in Jacksonville Florida I thought that they did that every where if I was there I would help you because I work in smalls but I still help people loading and unloading their trucks listen to him very well our driver's get paid $600.00 dollars a week

I enjoy watching your videos, I'm a UPS driver, and I'm just curious about how strict fed ex is when it comes to delivery methods and driving rules/viewing habits? For example on the methods part...we basically get 45 seconds to deliver a single package residential stop, the telematics starts timing as soon as the engine shuts off and we get 15 seconds to open and shut the bulkhead door (package selection time) then 30 seconds to drop the package and start the engine to head to the next stop. Then as far as viewing habits and driving rules there really is a good bit, too much to type it all out but the basics are 1-Aim high when steering 2-Get the big picture 3-Keep eyes moving 4-Leave yourself an out 5-Make sure they see you. Each of the 5 is broken down into more detail but again, I'm just curious if y'all have similar rules and guidelines

Our terminal has a lot of issues. Sometimes I'm not able to dispatch until 10:00 AM. Either our systems are down, manifests wont print, trucks are late and we have slow package handlers who constantly mess up.

FedEx Ground sucks. They don't tell you when they hire you that you are not even a FedEx employee .People will tell you it's awesome because you can own your own route, but you will never get a good route over the OG drivers and contractors already there before you.

Kyle Shackelford (9 months ago)
As a package handler, I had realized that one of my drivers would be angry and re-organize the WHOLE truck when he got there, so instead of wasting both of our time, I started loading to his spec. Now, I can just look at the address and know exactly where the package goes on the truck. If I ever get a package that needs taped, I don't even load it until I get it some help. Some of us do our job well lol......

Kay Jay (10 months ago)
I quit because my manager yelled at me for helping my fellow drivers load their trucks, and then the owner told me to do what the manager said even if he was wrong. The only problem with me helping people load trucks in the morning is because the manager didn't want me to. That was the only reason I was given. He had no other reason for yelling at me. I would even help him and others deliver at the end of my shift. He literally told me the only reason why he didn't want me to help load trucks was because he didn't want me to. That was it. He said there was no issue with me helping others load their trucks it just wasn't what he wanted me to do. I was more upset that the owner took the managers side. His reason was that he hired him as the manager and he put his trust in him, and he told me I was in the wrong for questioning the managers decision. He blamed me for the whole situation and wanted me to admit it was my fault. I told them I was not in the wrong, and I wasn't going to admit fault and didn't want to work for them anymore. So i quit. The other drivers talked me into coming back to work because they couldn't handle the load I left them with, and wanted my help. Because the other drivers needed me, and asked me to come back and help them I did. I called the manager and said if you need the help I will promise not to help others unless asked to do so. The manager said something along the lines of good you see it my way or something like it, which really bothered me, but I went to work again anyways. The owner was mad at me and didn't pay me for some of the work I did, and I was just over it. I couldn't work and not get paid so I left again. I haven't worked for Fedex since.

As a Fedex contractor the top 5 reasons I see people leave. In order are . 1 long hours 2 no benefits 3 money 4 pressure 5 weather. If you got anger issues or become overwhelmed easily ? This is not for you. Can’t deal with angry people in a calming professional way ? Not for you. Can’t handle that Your service must meet or exceed Ups for half the money. Not for you.

Do you have experience driving a delivery truck? Most truck are automatic
cameron marshall (11 months ago)
Yea I have a clean record at 23, been driving for over 7 years but never a manual. That would honesty take me a week of practice to master I'm a gear head an have installed a clutch before for a friend but never actually drove one come to think of it lol. I'd rent a truck an practice

Is dispatch the same as the time we launch from the station?

If dispatch is launch time, then we usually are out of station between 7:50am or so or later depending on trucks/flights. Late freight sucks. I am a late start so I start at 7:30am

Taylar James (1 year ago)
Amen brother. I was a Home Delivery guy for about 6 years 3 Years in  Chicago 3 years Seattle and Im still emotionally and mentally recovering. The most stops I had during Christmas was almost 300 stops  we had to load our own trucks, and it was downtown Chicago. Ive never been so stressed in my life. My average stops were from 120 to 150. Definitely under paid and under appreciated.
algierssolja (11 months ago)
Sleep? Who the hell needs sleep. We have work that needs to move. You can sleep when you die....or retire. LOL sleep! That is a good one.
Taylar James (11 months ago)
Because a lot of the deliveries were down town Chicago, so I had a lot of high rise apartments and businesses up to about 60 floors or so and sometimes you could get rid up 20 packages at a time. That would take some of the edge off, but sometimes Id be working from 6am to 9 at night, but yah almost sleeping at the hub.
klazzikk (1 year ago)
Taylar James how is that even possible? did you sleep at the hub?
Mr Harvey Guy (1 year ago)
8:30 is right around the normal range anytime past 9:00 is a little later than normal for packages to be made available. If your van is messy everyday, look in to your vision map. Also follow up with the VL manager. If that doesn’t do it, get with the Sort Manager and or P&D manager
